Antique Polynesian Prayer Post circa 1820

List Price $1,834

This custom mounted antique Polynesian prayer post circa 1820 features a marvelously weathered column riven with wind and water to create a uniquely textured artifact. Please notice the rear side of the post that has an opening where offerings of foodstuffs, charms, fetish figures and other objects were placed in supplication to the gods for a particular outcome. The deeply grained surface is testament to the passage of time exhibited by this example of ancient Polynesian culture while the gorgeous gray colour emphasizes the sculptural effect and appeal of this piece. It now stands upon a custom steel base of great weight that provides stability and support. Because the prayer post is finished on all sides it may be placed in a variety of locations within an interior or situated outside beneath a covered loggia or terrace.
